As a nutritionist and feeding specialist, I am often asked about vitamins and supplements for children. I felt that getting Meg from Choose Nutrition to answer a few of these questions was a great idea. This chat was aired in our Parenting Picky Eaters private facebook group at the end of last year. The lighting isn’t amazing and my internet connection was a bit poorly at the time. I am hoping that you still love listening to all of Meg’s fantastic insights.
My take home points from this video are that
- Each child has different needs and you should always seek professional opinion if a nutrient deficiency is suspected.
- Vitamins can relieve your anxiety as a parent but should be viewed as a short term approach to getting feeding habits back on track.
- Always offer a rainbow of foos and lots of variety to children so that they can learn about foods.
